If you're new to the iPad universe, getting a guide is going to help you unlock all of the little features that you never knew existed. Heck even if you've had an iPad before you'll learn something new when you flip through a well put together guide like this one. If your first iPad also happens to be the iPad mini it will be easier for you to learn with a book directed towards the device you're holding. Dummy books aren't generally my favorites, but this one does a good job of distilling exactly what you need to know to use the iPad mini from music, to videos, to pictures and apps and since the screenshots in it are from the mini you'll probably spend less time searching for buttons than you would with a guide meant for the full sized iPad. The walk throughs are good, the layout is exactly what you would expect from a dummies book (well organized, helpful screenshots, and all of the traditional guidepost icons to help you find the information you're looking for).All in all if you're struggling to learn the iPad Mini this is the book for you.
This is the perfect companion to your iPad if you've never had one. It goes over all features, and plainly explains how to use them, as well as providing tips and suggestions of possible uses for the apps. I bought y iPad basically to have internet when I travel, but knew it had to do more than just that for the cost. This book really lets you know how many useful features and uses your iPad has.
This book provides the step by step procedures to open the available tasks that the mini iPad can accomplish. Easy reading with great explanations. Don't let the title discourage you from getting this set of directions.
As soon as I received this I opened and started looking through it. Within the first five minutes I learned a great deal about the mini iPad. Neither my wife or I have ever used an iPad before and we consult this book frequently to find out different uses. Definitely glad I purchased this.
Being a self-confessed techno-skeptic, I had put off purchasing an iPad, but we are going on vacation to Europe this summer and wanted to have the ability to stay in touch without lugging around a laptop. So we invested in an iPad mini, and this book to help us get the most out of it.The book is well written with an easy, informal style. Information is conveyed with a minimum of tech-speak, so its easy for non-techies, like myself, to understand. I've learned a lot and re-inforced some aspects I already knew about. It's been most useful.
This book is necessary when purchasing an ipad Mini. An ipad Mini is wonderful, useful and innovative device but the needed manual to learn its' true capabilities is lacking from Apple. This manual provides simple and complete instructions with color pictures providing answers to the questions you will have.
I admit that I am technology challenged & this book is packed with a lot of helpful information. I am so glad I bought it.
Very helpful for someone who has never had a smart phone or other pad-like device. Since Apple does not provide any helpful hints to get one started, the book was a life saver for me. I have a Mac computer, but this was a whole new thing!
